Le’Veon Bell sat on his couch Saturday night to watch who he thought his Steelers would face in the AFC Championship game. He thought wrong.
Looking ahead to New England, the running back hopped on Twitter, essentially guaranteeing a win Sunday, saying he was set for round two against the Patriots (referring to last year’s AFC Championship game).
Less than 24 hours later, the Steelers dropped the ball at home against Jacksonville, getting down 21-0 early and eventually loosing 45-42.
I love round 2’s…we’ll have two round 2’s in back to back weeks…

Additionally, Bell raised eyebrows when he brought up contract negotiations for next season two days before the team’s biggest game of the season.
